    Looks maybe a little loose, but otherwise, pretty good from what we can see!

    based on the price, even though I do want this nemesis version, still want to wait and here about the quality of plastic.

    oh and inglorious bastards is a great movie!

    I keep hearing about how the Chest panels got remolded. What did they do exactly? I would like to know.

    I'm assuming they fixed it so they sit flush unlike the mpop molds where they are slightly ajar- not a major change. Just an assumption though

    Test short or not...that thing sounds like it's made entirely of plastic. And for the price that thing will go for...i can easily see myself NOT buying one

    The huge dim close-up on the black-on-black-on-black head kind of made me :lol

    Is it just me, or does the 'click click click' of the joints sound a little... fragile? Like the 'snap snap snap' you sometimes get from KOs?

    Might just be the audio. Still, I worry about how thin the plastic will be in places when you downsize something like that.

    Agreed. I'd always hoped Hasbro would try something like this, knowing full well they never would. Considering it's being done by an outside group makes me worry about quality all the more. I'd really love one, as he'd go great with the regular line. I'm still very much on the fence, though.

    I'm personally waiting until Vangelus, Peaugh, or one of the other high-caliber reviewers get a hold of one, and put it through its paces.

    Even then... I just don't feel quite right about it. This isn't like Defender, or Shadow Warrior... this is a design HasTak paid for and developed, that was just taken and shrunken down.

    Maybe that's just semantics, but I really am curious if they put enough work into this, redesigning parts and mechanism rather than just blindly scaling them down, to add enough value to justify it's price tag.

    Well, considering the new chest and lack of embossed emblem on the shoulder, we know they're capable of modifying the assembly~ Still, I've seen oversize KOs with thinner plastic than the originals, so this could go either way. >.>;

    I just had an email from igear and the first release of PP01 has now sold out apparently. They will announce a 2nd wave soon.

    So if anyone was on the fence this time around... Too late. Alas, I am included in that as I really wanted an in-hand review before I splashed out. Ho hum.
